AUNBT Questions The Hiring Of Security By UNB

The strike carries on at UNB campuses around the province....and Teacher's Association President Miriam Jones tells CHSJ News the teachers are dismayed that the university has hired a private security firm to supervise the picket line, asking protestors to provide personal information and taking photographs.

She says they are pretty heavy duty and are being hired out to big companies who are shutting down plants adding they deal with crisis and potentially violent situations.

Jones says it's been a very dismaying development in the strike....but they're hoping to get back to the bargaining table soon with negotiators meeting to discuss the next steps today.
